Below are links to pdf versions on the Lund Barnacle periodical publication.
The Lund Barnacle was highlighted in a 1994 pan-Canadian
survey of "rural community innovations" ("Where the Grass
Thrusts Through the Concrete" published by Voluntary Action Directorate,
Canadian Heritage - Government of Canada ISBN --663-33361-2). As one of only 6 models from BC that were
selected to be highlighted in the survey, the Barnacle demonstrates the ways
individuals come together as a community to explore/resolve concerns and to
care for each other. As described in the
Survey, the Barnacle exemplifies a grass-roots initiative that helps keep
communities vibrant and healthy even when facing difficult, changing, or
challenging economies and circumstances.

In 2014, an idea was tossed around by Teedie Kagume, of the
Powell River Historical Museum, and Sandy Dunlop, current editor of the
Barnacle, to have the Museum digitize
all of the back issues from the newspaper’s debut in summer 1988. This idea
blossomed into approval by the Lund Community Society to apply for a matching
funds grant to the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at UBC Library. In February
of 2015, we learned we had been awarded the grant.
Finding a copy of all of the Barnacles was challenging;
finding uncrumpled copies without coffee rings, pen doodles, and half-completed
crosswords was even more so. Under each volunteer editor and staff, the paper
had a different publishing schedule, so we may never know if the issues we
could not find were ever even printed. So Lund! What follows are the issues we
did find, and being able to save them from moths and to share them online is
